Question about Pegasus ST09B 9" Portable Digital TV with ATSC Tuner

Open Question

Recently received ST09-B 9" digital TV with ATSC tuner as a gift. Attempting initial setup. Have powered and turned onTV, have pressed MENU on remote control and obtained main menu on scree. Am supposed to use the green arrow key on the remote control to navigate to the "Antenna icon" which is in the upper far right corner of the screen ( there are 4 other icons to the left of it in the upper row on the screen ). Below the top row of icons are 6 other rows ( in a list from top to bottom: picture mode, contrast, brightness, sharpness, tint ans color ). The problem is that the system does not allow me to navigate to the upper row of icons in order to highlight the "antenna" icon in the upper far right and the to push enter on the remote. Navigation permits only vertical movement among the bottom 6 rows. Please advise. Thanks

Can my Olivia LCD LT26 be hooked to an indoor had antennae? Once antennae hooked up what are next steps?


Yes. Depending on your location depends on how well it will work. If you are in the US you can go to antennaweb.org and get a fairly accurate idea if an indore antenna will work and what you can expect to receive. After you connect your antenna you need to do a channel search.

Have lost all channel 2 stations


I assume you are having a problem with OTA channels. On some TVs, if a digital channel doesn't have enough signal strength, the channel list will get edited to exclude it. Have you checked that your antenna is pointed in the correct direction? My external antenna sometimes turns in high winds. Turning it back to the original direction improves the signal strength so that the tuner works. Then go into the Menu and find the Setup or Channels sub-menu to attempt to rescan for channels. (If you add a comment with the model of your TV, I may be able to give the specific sub-menu details for scanning for channels.)

If your antenna has an amplifier, try using the antenna without that amplifier. A few times, the amplifier/splitter attached to that external antenna has been damaged. Then the amplifier becomes a filter and blocks some channels. If you are far enough away from your local station's transmitter and can't receive the signal without the amplifier, replace it.

If another TV receives the stations, the problem is more likely to be the tuner for the TV itself. These can be damaged by a surge from the antenna. The solution is to get a set-top box with an ATSC tuner or replace the TV. Some sites may have replacement tuners (like shopjimmy.com that salvages parts from TVs with damaged screens); however I don't know if they'd have the part you'd need.

I hope this helps.

Here's the basics: Make sure your receiver is in the Tuner mode, by selecting Tuner on either the remote (grey button), on the receiver, or from the GUI menu. (The display will also show TUNER.) There are a couple of different ways to tune a station. One method is with the remote. Use the Band button on the remote (or via the GUI display), or the FM/AM button on the receiver, to select the frequency type. Use the Freq/Ch buttons on the remote to tune, the number buttons for presets (30 presets total. Examples: Preset 5, simply press 5; Preset 15, enter 5-5; Preset 25, enter 5-5-5). You can also use the on-screen GUI menu and the remote to tune stations, using the lower grey buttons. If you want to tune directly, via the receiver, press Select, to switch between frequency tuning and presets (displays ST CALL) mode. Use the Multi-Jog dial to make your selection in either mode. The easiest way to program a station into a preset is to use the onscreen GUI menu. [NOTE: The GUI mode (TV Monitor Video Out, composite video) is active when an amber (orange) ring glows around the Multi-Jog dial (the GUI button on the receiver will also glow simultaneously). Use the remote lower grey buttons, or use the Multi-Jog dial and Select, to move the cursor and select commands on the TV. This A/V Receiver handles composite video/S-video, and Stereo/Dolby 3-Channel/Dolby Pro-Logic audio only. (Pre-ATSC/HD video, Pre-Dolby Digital/DTS multi-channel surround audio)]

How can i tell if my tv is digital


The iLo IWT3206 TV provides two built-in -- or integrated -- TV tuners: a National Television System Committee (NTSC) tuner and an Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) tuner.
While the NTSC tuner allows iLo IWT3206-viewers to receive analog, free-to-air TV broadcasts, the ATSC tuner allows viewers to receive digital TV broadcasts via a cable or satellite provider.
The benefit of having an integrated ATSC tuner is that it negates the need for a separate cable box or satellite receiver, which can take up space.

you have to connect the tv tuner directly to the coax cable coming in. The receiver will not tune tv channels. You can then connect the tv to the receiver via optical cable

Is jvc av-32d503 digital ready or do I need to buy a converter box for use with an outside antenna system


Looks like you'll need a converter.

Here's some background info:


Analog TVs were made up until 2007.

Digital tuners for over the air signals are called "ATSC tuners".

To tell if your TV has one:

-If the TV was sold as a "HDTV" or "DTV", it's supposed to have an ATSC tuner built in to it. "HD ready TVs" do not have a digital tuner.

-Check the specs in the owners manual or google the make & model of the TV to see if it has an ATSC tuner.

-If your TV's menu has an option for scaning for digital channels, then it has an ATSC tuner. If it dosen't have a way to scan for digital channels, then it doesn't have a digial tuner.

Most DTVs also have a digital QAM tuner that is used in some (but not all) cable systems.

I have a universal remote for a sony kv20 fv12 tv- i need to reset the channels (there are only 6 available) but i do not have the sony remote- can I somehow "run" through all the channels again?


Yes. If the universal remote has the menu button that works for your TV, you can use that. Otherwise there is a Menu button on the front of the TV. It's behind a cover panel - in the area with a headphone jack and the Video 2 inputs.

Press Menu to get the Onscreen Menu display. Press the Right arrow button to highlight Setup (it's the furthest right icon). Then press the Down arrow button to highlight Options. Press either the Right arrow button or + to select. Then navigate to Cable (down arrow) and press the right arrow or +. Then use the up or down arrow to select On (CATV) or Off (OTA) depending on your TV connection. Press the Left arrow or +. Then highlight Autoprogram and press the right arrow or + again. This begins the channel scan.

Note that this tv has a NTSC tuner (analog). You'll need a set top box with a digital (ATSC) tuner to receive most stations these days (US). Only low power stations were allowed to keep broadcasting in analog after June 2009 in the US. The changeover date is in Aug 2011 for Canada.

A copy of the manual for your TV is available here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KV20FV12 as a pdf.

I hope this helps.

Digital Transition


It's analog.  You need to purchase a digital receiver.  I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005.  Search Ebay for "ATSC usb".  There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive.  To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also.  You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.
